About Carl Honoré

Carl Honoré is a globetrotting ambassador for the Slow Movement.

After working with street children in Brazil, he covered Europe and South America as a foreign correspondent for the Economist, Observer, Time, Miami Herald and others.

His first book, In Praise of Slow, examines our compulsion to hurry and chronicles a global trend toward putting on the brakes. It was a BBC Radio 4 Book of the Week and the inaugural choice for the Huffington Post Book Club. The Financial Times said it is “to the Slow Movement what Das Kapital is to communism.”

His other books, Under Pressure and The Slow Fix, explore childrearing and problem-solving.

Translated into more than 30 languages, Carl has landed on bestseller lists in many countries. The Wall Street Journal hailed him as “an in-demand spokesman on slowness.” Newsweek described him as “an international spokesman for the concept of leisure.” Huffington Post labelled him “the godfather of the Slow movement.” His TED talk has been viewed over a million times.
